Our Rodeo to Radio Guru shares his thoughts on the massive announcement ...
The Edmonton Oilers Entertainment Group and Professional Bull Riders (PBR) have joined forces to create a western lifestyle destination event.
Yesterday a partnership was announced to bring the PBR Monster Energy Canada Tour Finals and a special global invitational PBR event to Rogers Place. It will be the centerpiece of a new festival to coincide with Edmonton's annual Farm Fair exhibition.
John Radcliff, Voice of the Rodeo Report on Country 106, says it will take place from November 10 through the 12th in 2017 and serves as a replacement for the Canadian Finals Rodeo - which after this year is moving from Edmonton to Saskatoon.
The three-day global pro bull riding showcase will be broadcast on TSN and there will be a $1 million dollar purse up for grabs for the competitors.
